Citron said he earned a fixed salary of $62,700 starting in 2003, which was raised to $68,000 in 2006 and $75,000 in 2010.

A spokesperson for the Trump Organization told CNN, "Mr. Cintron was at all times paid generously and in accordance with the law".

At his wake at the Charbonnet Labat Glapion funeral home in Treme, a very unconventional service was held. According to Matthews" mom, Temeka, her son was a "homebody' whose favorite athlete was indeed Irving.

Noel Cintron, who served as driver for Trump, his family and businesses for more than 25 years, was replaced by the Secret Service when his boss won the Republican nomination for president in 2016.

Noel Cintron said the Trump Organization has not paid him for 3,300 hours of overtime in the last six years, the most he can sue for because of a statute of limitations, and has not given him a "meaningful" raise for 12 years. And one, he said, came with an unusual condition - to get a $7,000 pay increase, Cintron was told he had to give up his Trump Organization health insurance.

Larry Hutcher, a lawyer for Cintron, said his client had not sued sooner because he had been unaware of his rights, and that it was "regrettable" a lawsuit became necessary. Cintron is seeking about $200,000 in damages, Hutcher said.

Trump didn't give Cintron a raise in over 12 years - and even yanked health insurance worth almost $18,000 a year, according to court papers. Just a year ago, a supply company claimed they were never paid for paint that was used to re-paint Trump's luxury golf resort. In 1980, Trump was involved in a major lawsuit when he demolished the Bonwit Teller building in New York City in order to build Trump Tower. Cintron is the latest on a long list of unpaid employees and contractors whom Trump refuses to pay, despite his self-proclaimed billionaire status.
